    Good choice. :) I gave up waiting a month ago and bought the same model as you. An upgrade to 12gb RAM later and I'm absolutely delighted with my purchase.

    Congrats on the purchase.
    If you're just doing normal work, you won't really notice any difference with 12gb of memory.

    Yeah for normal use you don't need it. I do a lot with virtual machines (running windows xp/vista/7 for application testing purposes) the extra RAM makes a HUGE difference to performance.
